Domaine Dandelion Hautes Côtes Nature
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Christian Knott and Morgane Seuillot of Domaine Dandelion have two hectares of old vines in a patchwork of small plots around the village of Meloisey near St Romain. Viticulture is organic with some biodynamics - Christian and Morgane spray raw milk on the vines instead of sulphur and eschew any machinery in the vineyards, preferring to employ their trusty horse. Once harvested by hand, the grapes are pressed in an old wooden screw press and aged in neutral oak under their house before bottling without filtration or sulphur.
The Hautes Côtes Nature is a beautifully soft and silky Pinot Noir with perfumed strawberry, cherry and spice aromas. Round and perfectly balanced on the palate with great concentration.
